I have a flyscreen, and it's not enough for extended winter riding. I  
mean it's fine at 50 degrees, but rather cold at 40 and raining. I'd  
like more coverage. I am familiar with the Givi line and have a  
request in for a quote (looking at the 760) but it takes days to get a  
response from them. Problem is I have not used any of those, hoping to  
hear from someone who has, or anyone who knows of other brands so I  
can compare.

Oh, and if you think bar mounts move the bike around try an old  
windjammer. Talk about a sail! Great wind protection, but I really  
don't want to cobble up a mount.
